School Council

School Council


At Thomas Eaton Primary Academy, we respect and value the fundamental British values of democracy and ensure the views and opinions of our pupils are expressed. At the beginning of the year, the children elect school council members from each year group 1-6. All pupils are invited to stand as school council representatives and write and deliver a manifesto to their class. They are then voted for fairly and democratically by their peers. The Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are then voted for by the elected members of the School Council.


The School Council meet every month with Mrs Davies to discuss issues raised by the children and discuss ideas to help improve our school further. If you have any ideas or suggestions to help improve our school, please see your class representatives who will bring your suggestions to the next meeting. You can also find a 'suggestions' box in the school library. 


The School Council is an exciting and meaningful part of the school and the children who are elected are very proud of their responsibilities. Our School Council do a fantastic job and we are very proud of those who take part.
